Offered is a good pair of American coin silver sugar tongs decorated with die-struck basket of flowers motifs to each arm, and bearing the maker's mark of jeweler and silversmith Charles Bond of Boston, working circa 1825. This piece has a period engraved script monogram of "MJB" and is in good condition, with moderate surface wear and a few signs of use, but no dents, splits or repairs. It measures about 6 1/8 inches in length and weighs about 38 grams. All in all a lovely example of a desirable American coin silver decorated serving piece!
